Can someone give me a private lesson?

UPDATE*** Guys thank you very much for all your advises. I found what I was looking for.


Hi ,
Motorcycle schools are closed now due to COVID.
I got my M1 and I was so impatient to get my first motorcycle that I couldn’t wait to make the safety course first.
I got Honda CBR 250 R , and I need someone who will help me to get familiar with my bike and teach me few tricks.
And let me know how much you will be charging for 2h classes ? I live in Thornhill

thank you
Anna

Ask for the riders experience before doing this...it would be better that they have race experience and more . some street rider is more than likely going to teach you bad habits .But my advice is dont do this, go to trail tours or a race school and get taught properly.

Anna, I recommend you remove your phone number from your post for privacy reasons and request people to PM you instead. You'll avoid a lot of unwanted telemarketer texts/calls.

No race experience.

Not qualified to teach clutch control, friction or rear brake application apparently.
lol....when I head out, I seem to use the front brake almost exclusively, then after 5-10 minutes I'm on the rear brake more than the front...Im sure you have enough experience to detect that I'm still newbish.

70/30 - FR and RR respectively is a good mentality to carry.

I don't always use the RR to brake while shaving off speed, but i ride a big boy bike with big boy brakes. However, I'll almost always use the RR while at low speeds, creates tension in the motorcycle and allows for better handling. Getting on the FR while at low speed (especially while turning) outside of an emergency brake situation, is a great way to meet the pavement.

Racing and riding on the street two different skills . One is to go the fastest around the track . The other is to travel from A to B . Some skills are interchangeable . But I met a few guys that are great on the track but a disaster on the street .

that is complete nonsense. riding at speed on track in a race develops skills way beyond what any street rider could ever develop. braking , throttle control , crash avoidance, a racer will be at a way higher level of skill period.

I actually agree with you on this, but the OP has never ridden before and needs to learn the basics to even get on a track. No race school is going to teach you how to feather the clutch to start from a standstill, or any of the other basics that you would get from a road course.

Riding in control on the street looking out for road hazards and cars . Is not the same as focusing on the fastest line on the track . You don't get a yellow flag before entering a corner with a hazard halfway through on the street . I did say some skills are interchangeable .

how is this not obvious. riding on the street will not throw things at you at speed like they will on the track.
same as you should ride on the dirt to improve throttle control and balance.
street riding doesn't teach you much until its too late

Tricks as in tips and tricks. You don't seriously think she wants to learn how to stunt?

I just read into what she wrote.
